Cold eeze - 13.3 mg ioni zinc from zincum gluconicum

Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 8 years ago.
Ok. Thanks for that info. Zinc can be a potentially bad thing for dogs, but this is a zinc salt and it is poorly absorbed. Most of the time these sitautions at most can cause stomach upset - but that shouldn't happen at this dose. I would just keep her in a quiet area and let her rest.

should we give her bread or anything to absorb it or water or anything
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 8 years ago.
I wouldn't give her anything different to eat at this time. It might cause some upset. I would just let her be quite and she should be ok.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
does she need to drink water or anything else
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 8 years ago.
I would let her have access to water here tonight. I would pull up her food and start that in the morning.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Thank you so much. She is sleeping. Have a great night!
Expert:  Dr. Bruce replied 8 years ago.
You too! Good night!
